Twisters ripped through a number of homes and caused significant damage across a widespread area on Tuesday.

“The storms were devastating to this area, and we want to assist our neighbors,” said Patrick Allen, U-Haul Company of Southern Louisiana president. “Many homes were damaged. Mobile homes were destroyed. Families that suffered losses may need a secure place to store their things until they can get back on their feet. We want to help in any way we can.”
